The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ,
According to St. John

  Chapter 15  

15:1 I am the true vine; and my Father is the husbandman.
ego sum vitis vera et Pater meus agricola est

15:2 Every branch in me, that beareth not fruit, he will take away: and every one that beareth fruit, he will purge it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
omnem palmitem in me non ferentem fructum tollet eum et omnem qui fert fructum purgabit eum ut fructum plus adferat

15:3 Now you are clean by reason of the word, which I have spoken to you.
iam vos mundi estis propter sermonem quem locutus sum vobis

15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me.
manete in me et ego in vobis sicut palmes non potest ferre fructum a semet ipso nisi manserit in vite sic nec vos nisi in me manseritis

15:5 I am the vine; you the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.
ego sum vitis vos palmites qui manet in me et ego in eo hic fert fructum multum quia sine me nihil potestis facere

15:6 If any one abide not in me, he shall be cast forth as a branch, and shall wither, and they shall gather him up, and cast him into the fire, and he burneth.
si quis in me non manserit mittetur foras sicut palmes et aruit et colligent eos et in ignem mittunt et ardent

15:7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you.
si manseritis in me et verba mea in vobis manserint quodcumque volueritis petetis et fiet vobis

15:8 In this is my Father glorified; that you bring forth very much fruit, and become my disciples.
in hoc clarificatus est Pater meus ut fructum plurimum adferatis et efficiamini mei discipuli

15:9 As the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you. Abide in my love.
sicut dilexit me Pater et ego dilexi vos manete in dilectione mea

15:10 If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; as I also have kept my Father's commandments, and do abide in his love.
si praecepta mea servaveritis manebitis in dilectione mea sicut et ego Patris mei praecepta servavi et maneo in eius dilectione

15:11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be filled.
haec locutus sum vobis ut gaudium meum in vobis sit et gaudium vestrum impleatur

15:12 This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you.
hoc est praeceptum meum ut diligatis invicem sicut dilexi vos

15:13 Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
maiorem hac dilectionem nemo habet ut animam suam quis ponat pro amicis suis

15:14 You are my friends, if you do the things that I command you.
vos amici mei estis si feceritis quae ego praecipio vobis

15:15 I will not now call you servants: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth. But I have called you friends: because all things whatsoever I have heard of my Father, I have made known to you.
iam non dico vos servos quia servus nescit quid facit dominus eius vos autem dixi amicos quia omnia quaecumque audivi a Patre meo nota feci vobis

15:16 You have not chosen me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed you, that you should go, and should bring forth fruit; and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
non vos me elegistis sed ego elegi vos et posui vos ut eatis et fructum adferatis et fructus vester maneat ut quodcumque petieritis Patrem in nomine meo det vobis

15:17 These things I command you, that you love one another.
haec mando vobis ut diligatis invicem

15:18 If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you.
si mundus vos odit scitote quia me priorem vobis odio habuit

15:19 If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
si de mundo fuissetis mundus quod suum erat diligeret quia vero de mundo non estis sed ego elegi vos de mundo propterea odit vos mundus

15:20 Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.
mementote sermonis mei quem ego dixi vobis non est servus maior domino suo si me persecuti sunt et vos persequentur si sermonem meum servaverunt et vestrum servabunt

15:21 But all these things they will do to you for my name's sake: because they know not him who sent me.
sed haec omnia facient vobis propter nomen meum quia nesciunt eum qui misit me

15:22 If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
si non venissem et locutus fuissem eis peccatum non haberent nunc autem excusationem non habent de peccato suo

15:23 He that hateth me, hateth my Father also.
qui me odit et Patrem meum odit

15:24 If I had not done among them the works that no other man hath done, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father.
si opera non fecissem in eis quae nemo alius fecit peccatum non haberent nunc autem et viderunt et oderunt et me et Patrem meum

15:25 But that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law: They hated me without cause.
sed ut impleatur sermo qui in lege eorum scriptus est quia odio me habuerunt gratis

15:26 But when the Paraclete cometh, whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he shall give testimony of me.
cum autem venerit paracletus quem ego mittam vobis a Patre Spiritum veritatis qui a Patre procedit ille testimonium perhibebit de me

15:27 And you shall give testimony, because you are with me from the beginning.
et vos testimonium perhibetis quia ab initio mecum estis
